Jagirpally is a village in the Karimnagar District of Telangana, India.[1] Coming under SAIDAPUR Manda, it is situated near the famous temple village Godisaala. During the Kakatiya dynasty, one of the Kakatiya senaani (army chiefs) built the Shiva temple here. This temple came into the light during some archaeological excavations and the people believed that this temple is more famous than the Vemulavaada temple (which now has a famous Shiva temple).

Jagirpally is also near to Vangara, which is the hometown of the former Prime Minister of India, P.V. Narasimha Rao.

History[edit]

It is believed that some land was given to a person by the rulers, called the Jaageer. It was part of Saidapur Gram Panchayit's ward. Entire village received one ward but no political importance until the early 1990s. After the number of voters reached almost 1,000, the government elected separate Sarpanch elections to the village.

Other Information[edit]

Jagirpally has produced some good talent. Children used to walk for 3 km to reach the High School located at Venkapally to continue their studies from 6th to 10th. The majority of the population is dependent on agriculture. There are a few good doctors from this village like Laxmaiah Avula, Indrasena Reddy K and Srinivas K, as well as scientists like Prashanth A and Satyam K and software engineers like Vishnuvardhan K, Srinivas Reddy K, Sridhar K, Srikanth B, Praveen T and Anjaneyulu M, among others. There are also government employees like Sampath P and Ravinder G. There are also people who are working in different areas, like medical, education institutes, finance and other private institutes.

Agriculture in this village is 100% based on the rain water, wells and under the lakes. Between 1990 and the early 2000s, there was a severe drought resulting in many people migrating to Hyderabad. Some, however, went to Dubai and worked in very bad conditions. There was no bank until the early 2010s in the village as people were not used to getting loans for crops.
